Karl is the E Type convertible from the Sanghi collection by any chance.
I dont know about Sanghi having an E type, maybe he does. Sanghi is in Indore, TTK group is in Madras.

One of the current magazine editors and long time rallyist had also imported a white E type coupe a few years ago. I wonder where it is now. It still had the California plates "LOVE V12" on it.

Sanghi from Indore did have a black E Type convertible, which was for sale. Doc in bangalore also has a maroon E Type convertible. now one in Pune. i do realise TTK group is in Madras Karl. you mentioned Convertible in Pune, hense i asked if it was the Sanghi car or has Doc bought the Sanghi car.

Indian express has the white E Type coupe in Bombay its has been with him as far back as the 90's. his car as far as i remember has the normal plates never saw it with the Califonia plates. the cars have shifted to his other place now.

I see. Doc's E type is also black though. I think it was Delhi regd, not sure.

Yup, the white E type Im talking about also came in the 90s. Im sure it must have gotten registered after that but when I saw it it still had California plates. I have pcis somewhere Ill dig them up.

Anyways, back to topic now.

@karlosdeville: Are you aware of the TTK's groups collection? Ive heard they have quite a few classics. I heard about the E Type. Think there were pictures as well. Its got the 4 tip exhaust right? I remember one of them had an MG. Ive heard of a Triumph Bonneville, a LR Defender with the same family. The ex AVT Supra is with them, as is a previous gen Lexus GS. These Ive seen personally. But the family is big and Im not sure of the older cars with the others. They have quite a varied and interesting collection.

Yup neo it is indeed a Cadillac, a black one. Saw it yesterday, and it is exactly the same as in the pic of the blue one which you have uploaded.
IIRC, is it the same car which GM showcased in the Auto Expo and are planning to bring into India??

eshan lokhande, the famed mx rider from pune is a good friend of mine. he is being sponsored by pashankar racing, so i had 2 do a photoshoot for them. i thought what could be a better place than the audi showroom itself. not only got to experience all the cars(no drives, only seats lol), but also found out what a big car freak pashankar is. he and his friend are into dealing cars and he also owns uses most of them before selling them. the 300c, dodge nitro, cadillac cts, jeep cherokee etc happen to be on his list.

and guys you wont believe this, the area where my factory is located is called ravet, and guy who literally owned the place( can i disclose the name?) got himself a white h2 and white h3 on the same day. and you wont believe this, on the rear window of the h2 is a white lettering marathi sticker that says ''sarpanch'' plastered accross it. :(

LOLz. seem you guys missed the news in Sakal ( a marathi newspaper ) 2-3 day back. The same guy was raided by income tax officials and his H2 was 'supposedly' confiscated as papers were not clear as well as payment modes were un-disclosed.

PS: Both the hummers were sold to him by Pashankars.

Apart from Doc's E Type, which you rightly mentioned is black & Delhi registered, there is another Black Coupe in Bangalore, owned by the ( Late ) Ravikumars daughter.

Yup, the white E type Im talking about also came in the 90s. Im sure it must have gotten registered after that but when I saw it it still had California plates. I have pcis somewhere Ill dig them up.
The Pune car is probably in Delhi ?
